“I had a vision of a world where Stephen King was writing a book.
A world where he was writing something that he wanted to be read, and the book would have to be a universal language that was not written in a particular language, but the book.
It was a place I was looking for.
And I think it is what made The Dark Crystal great.
It is a world that’s universal, it’s an epic that weaves through time, and it’s one that people want to read and can’t read without reading.
And The Dark Sword is a book that does that.”—Stephen King, in an interview with The Washington Times about The Darker and Edgier of the Kingkiller Chronicles, published in February 2018.
